Discovering the Dolomites

I don't like skiing. This is partly because I ski with all the elegance and grace of a drunk giraffe but largely because I think that climbing up a mountain is vastly superior to slipping down it. I have yet to find a feeling that matches the sense of achievement and (once I've got my breath…

36 Hours in Dubrovnik

'If you want to see heaven on earth, come to Dubrovnik.' Even after eighty-seven years, we couldn't agree more with George Bernard Shaw. It is virtually impossible not to be charmed by the old town of Dubrovnik; an extremely good-looking historical gem jutting out from the Dalmatian coast.…

Deepest Mani, the unexplored cradle of ancient Greece.

Fears of driving on uncertain roads melted away in the midday Maniot heat, as we climbed through mountains that tumbled into the crystal blue sea. My reward for braving the hairpin bends from Kalamata to the Mani, was the breathtaking vistas glimpsed in between Cyprus and Olive trees on the…

Best Honeymoon Destinations in Africa

There is no doubt that Africa is a sought after destination for honeymooners. Whilst weddings are a once in a lifetime celebration, the honeymoon could be considered an investment and Africa provides the goods. Epic landscapes, experiential safaris, fascinating culture and some seriously…

A Winter Adventure

News has reached us of an opportunity so exciting that we simply couldn't keep it to ourselves. Two of our favourite hotels; Swedish Lapland's ultimate 'glamping' site, Aurora Safari Camp, and the ingenious (and slightly bonkers, which is why we love it so much) Treehotel, still have some…

Our Top 5 Aman Resorts

Two things have become apparent over the course of this Great British Summer. Number one: the aforementioned "summer" has been deeply underwhelming; one minute we're baking in glorious sunshine and the next we're ducking for cover from torrential rain. Number two: Team GB has had an absolute…

Find Your Inner Olympian: Sit-Down Sports Around the World

The Olympics are in full swing and that means just one thing: as a nation we're collectively glued to our telly boxes. We're all suddenly experts on fencing ("excellent use of the appel there") and can't tear ourselves away from the table tennis ("did you see that slow spinny topspin?"). And…

Our Top Six Cities Around the World

When asked to picture their perfect holiday, many people's minds immediately hit the beach; warm white sand between the toes, sparkling azure waters and someone rather good-looking fanning you with a large palm leaf. And who are we to deny such glories? But here at Original Travel we're also…

Do You Suffer From FOMO?

FOMO. Otherwise known as fear of missing out - a modern-day interpretation of keeping up with the Joneses, if you will. Yep, this is is how trends start, be that donning the latest fashion item, brunching at the newest hotspot or exploring the destination of the moment. And when it comes to…

Delightful Dunks

You know you're officially on holiday when you dive head first (or climb gracefully, or bomb, you get the picture) in to the cool, refreshing water of the hotel's swimming pool. And we're not talking about any old 25m situation, we're talking infinity pools with beautiful views, romantic…
